Sea Safety Event 2011 organised by Police Scotland Tayside
 
After a number of incidents earlier in 2011 involving personal water craft (jet ski's) and inflatables,some of which had resulted in the emergency services being tasked to rescue & recover broken down craft, it was agreed that a Sea Safety event which could offer advice and guidance to owners would be beneficial. 

Tayside Police Community Sergeant David Logie & PC Gordon Hay set about organising the event and invited organisations such as RNLI Sea Safety, Coastwatch Tay Unit, HM Coastguard, Forth Ports & Dundee City Council who are responsible for the management of the Broughty Ferry harbour and slipways to come along.

The Coastwatch Tay display was visited by a number of water craft owners who asked for advice about everything from flares, lifejackets, radio communications training and information about the Coastwatch and our voluntary service.
